Diary Block Tuesday



Today is the birthday of my third and youngest son, Colin. He has found a new passion in his life, hiking the Appalachian Trail. I was having a hard time doing a boot, so he is in sneakers here. The Mx on the right shoe is a symbol we use for our last name.



He recently got a tattoo. I think it is clever the way the "A" and "T" are incorporated.


Colin

He was always wanting to keep up with his older brothers. In this picture he has on shin guards because he wanted to play soccer too. He can also be seen clutching his blankie which was always by his side.
As time went on he became quite an athlete and masters every sport he loves.


Dylan, Colin and Johnson

This is my favorite picture of my sons. It was taken on a summer day, they had all just gotten out of the tub. Damp hair combed, all in their Jockeys (no air conditioning!) and ready for bed. Sweet smelling boys, at least for a while!


Jenny and Colin

Colin and his wife Jenny. The two of them are a perfect match!




Happy Birthday Colin!
